Who you might see / our staff
What you can expect
Anyone who uses our services first gets an assessment of their mental health needs and a plan of the care and support they will receive. They will also will also have one named person who co-ordinates their care and support. This person will be called either a named professional or, if your needs are more complex, a care co-ordinator. This person should be your main point of contact. You can speak to them about how your treatment and support are going.
The majority of our referrals come from GPs, but we will also accept referrals where there is a clear description of a serious mental health need from service users, carers, local housing services, social services, children's services, anti-behavioural units, police, and others.
GPs should make any referrals directly on eRS.
